From The Carnegie Hall 100th Anniversary Portfolio.

Published in 1991.

This is one of seven prints in the portfolio published in 1991 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Carnegie Hall.  Contributing artists were Georg Baselitz, Alex Katz, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mitchell, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, and Edward Ruscha.  The project was coordinated by Olivia Motch.

The portfolio is housed in a black reinforced case by Fiberbilt, New York, with Carnegie Hall anniversary logo screenprinted in gold on the front.  The introductory essay by Ruth E. Fine and documentation sheets for each artist's work are contained in an envelope attached to the top protective board inside the case.

The artist cut a section from a single discarded proof of this print into the shape of a heart, as a donation to the 100 Hearts Benefit Auction, held in New York on February 12, 1992, to benefit Bailey House, New York.  He later did the same with The Living Room (Corlett 250).
